“This kiwi is pleased”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Recently my great friends visited Long Beach and they wouldn't stop raving about how beautiful the town was. Unfortunately for them, they stayed at a motel that was rubbish. It was so awful that they changed accommodations the next night. They moved to the Rodeway Inn because it was near the town centre. During my stay at the Rodeway, we were pleased. The hotel was quite lovely and good fun! The lady that worked in the front gave wonderful recommendations of nearby places to eat. This inn is literally just minutes from downtown, which was convenient for my wife and me. This hotel went above and beyond with location, staff and comfort. I can most definitely say that I will come back again. Cheers to Rodeway.

We spent the weekend here on our way down to San Diego and was very happy that we had stayed here at the Rodeway Inn. This property in Long Beach was small, but had really clean and comfortable rooms. The bed was very comfortable and the free internet was quite handy. Our room had a flat panel television as well as modern, up to date furnishings. We went to a market up the street to buy some snacks and sundry and had used the small refrigerator and microwave in the room. The small amenities in the bathroom were quite nice as well. Overall, this property was quite nice.

This place is a great value for the price. We stayed here the night before participating in the Long Beach Half Marathon. It's perfect for that. The location is within walking distance of the Expo and the start and finish line. I was told it had been recently renovated and it was indeed clean, nice and comfortable with a friendly staff. Plus, the price was very reasonable. Only one thing to warn you about: there is a limited amount of parking and if you don't get there at the right time you have to pay $10 to park down the street. But its a minor inconvenience for all the other benefits.

Stayed here 4 nights while attending a conference in Long Beach - close to the convention center but 1/3 less cost than the conference rate at the big motels. I don't need a swimming pool, and I didn't need a parking space because I had my folding bicycle instead of a car! Great location with the protected bike lanes to go back and forth to the convention center. I will say that the bed was quite too soft for my taste, but I like a very very firm mattress. Staff were friendly and helpful. Thank you for a good visit.

Room Tip: There is no pool, but TripAdvisor won't let me unselect the pool rating.

It is a motel, and the client photos on this site are more accurate of the place than the professional ones. It is VERY clean, comfortable, bare-bones. Given the location so close to the Convention centre, it is good value. The desk clerk is very helpful. If you want hotel quality...not here.

Room Tip: No pool, no fitness centre, breakfast muffin is in plastic. All rooms are quiet, off the street.

At the last minute, I needed a room near the convention center in Long Beach and had to stick to a budget. Stayed here four years ago and this place needed some TLC however the price was right. Not sure if there is new management however the place was updated. My room was very clean plus the beds and pillows very comfortable.. The staff was very helpful when I asked for directions and kept my luggage all day after I checked out. Location was great as it is just a short walk to the convention center. Will be back next year!

Room Tip: They all face each other across the parking area.

We arrived around 8pm and were unable to find any available parking at the hotel...limited number of spaces were all taken. We parked down the street and walked up to the receptionist who was seated behind a protective window talking to her friend in the office. We politely asked if there was any overflow parking in the back of the hotel, and she was very rude in her response, quoting the reservation details (which admittedly we did not notice when we booked the hotel) that said "Limited complimentary parking," and said that we could park at the hotel across the street for an extra $10. Given the inconvenience and her poor attitude, I asked to speak to her manager, and she replied that he wasn't available. We ended up going down the street to one of the convention center hotels, which for $30 more in price had much nicer amenities (pool, hot tub, plenty of parking, and very nice customer service) and was in a much nicer neighborhood.
